Tea Time Tuesday
Hello everyone and welcome to Tea Time Tuesday~ I am delighted that you have stopped by and I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
Before I begin my tea party, I would like to give you an update on Jenna-Lynn.
Update: To those of you who have been praying for my little eleven week old granddaughter, Jenna-Lynn, thank you! They have released her from the hospital although she is still not well. Her mother is a nurse so she will be in good hands. Continued prayer would be appreciated! God bless you all!
I feel like celebrating because this is the last day of February! We have the biggest snow bank we've ever had on our front doorstep. What a winter it has been! Storm after storm has hit us here on Prince Edward Island and indeed, it is snowing yet again! We Islanders are sure looking forward to daffodils and tulips!
Speaking of tulips, aren't these pretty? I love pink tulips in this pink vase!
My tea today is centered around these beautiful pink tulips Hubby got me and this pretty teacup which was wedding shower gift many years ago.
I can't find much information on this teacup, only that it is an Elizabethan number 3696.
It is a footed teacup with pink roses and yellow tulips sprinkled on an embossed background. I believe the little blue flowers are bluebells but I could be wrong about that. In any case, it is a cute teacup made of fine bone china in England! The saucer has a slightly scalloped edge.
I always enjoy seeing a little nosegay inside the teacup too! The handle is split and has a comfortable thumbrest.
A delicate and buttery little nibble with your tea?
This time of year, when one is longing for Spring and making changes in their home as well as plans for their garden, it's nice to peruse a magazine or decorating book such as Victoria. This book was a gift from a friend and its pages hold lovely photos of interiors and ideas. With a heavy blanket of snow outside my window, I enjoy sipping on a hot cup of tea and browsing through this delightful book. My eyes feast on the loveliness within the pages and I dream of flowers and songbirds.
Soon the songbirds will return and I can open my windows and hear the melody of my little feathered friends.
St. Patricks Day is just around the corner and since I love the colour green as well as having a wee bit of Irish in me, I am planning to share something green the week of March 14. Maybe you would like to as well.
I am also planning a Spring Tea Party on the 21 of March. I would be delighted if you would celebrate the new season with me! Share your favourite teacup or teapot which reminds you of Springtime and tell us all about it.
Surround yourself with loveliness today; a cup of tea in a pretty teacup, a good book, and the joy of knowing that Spring will soon be here!

"Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don't matter at all, because once you are Real you can't become ugly, except to people who don't understand. "~ The Velveteen Rabbit
